A professional paint job to the exterior of your home is a low-cost, effective way to update the appearance of your home. Depending on the type of siding on your house, painting your home is a critical and preventative form of maintenance. When painting is ignored, it can lead to costly repairs resulting from rot and degradation of materials. At Steady Hands Painting, we follow a five-step process (refer to the sidebar) to ensure you will have a long lasting finish with minimal maintenance.
The Steady Hands
- Site and surface preparation: Taping all windows and protecting all landscaping and exterior items that will not be painted. If appropriate, we power wash or chemical treat surfaces to remove all dirt and dust.
- Scrape, sand, and prime: It is pivotal that any loose or peeling paint is scraped off the surface and sanded before priming. We only use an oil-based primer and not a water acrylic based for areas scraped.
- Caulking: All gaps and cracks are filled and sealed with a high-grade polyurethane-based caulking
- Apply Paint: Application of two coats minimum of long lasting high-quality paint.
- Clean up: Thoroughly clean job site
— Worked With Our Insurance Company ( Pam L. - Feb. 10, 2016 )We recently had water damage in our attic from an insurance claim. Steady Hands Painting handled the entire claim for us and completed all the work from start to finish. The Steady Hands Team was prompt, reliable, professional, and did quality work. I would consider myself to have a high standard of excellence and this team met my expectations. I appreciated their attention to detail and how organized the job site looked when they came and left each day. I would highly recommend Brad and Billie to my friends and family and would use their services again in the future.
— Wonderful To Work With ( MaryLee B. - April 4, 2016 )Brad and Billie from Steady Hands Painting are wonderful to work with. They are amazingly reliable, talented, creative and collaborative. They painted the exterior of my home and redid my basement family room and bathroom. Taking the time to add extra touches and to make sure every aspect of the project is the best it can be is their signature. They are good communicators which makes the projects fun during the planning phases and when in process. I am looking forward to my next project with Steady Hands Painting.
— Wonderful Insights on Using a Safe and Quality Paint ( Sujata I. - April 20, 2016 )We are putting up our house for sale and wanted to get it painted a neutral color. I got wonderful insights on what would be a good compromise between using a safe /quality paint (I have a 2-month-old) but not go totally overboard with the cost. Both Billie and his painter Andrew were a pleasure to work with. They got the job done well and fast in midst of our chaotic household. I can't thank them enough for not only the work that they did but for being patient with my older one following them around! I'm going to have them come back and paint the garage doors when the weather improves. I would highly recommend them.
— Great Price For Quality Of Work ( Dustin L. - November 22, 2016 )About 4 years ago we got quotes for having our deck refinished in exactly the same way that Steady Hands refinished it. At that time, we received quotes up to $2,500 and never received a quote near the $417 that "The Insurance Company" has reimbursed at this point. When the dust settled we ended up going with a company from Lincoln that cost roughly the same amount (which was the lowest bid we received) as the recent Steady Hands quote, but I can honestly say that the Lincoln company didn't do half as good of a job as Steady Hands did. I will definitely be reaching out to Steady Hands again down the road when the time comes to have our deck refinished again. The price they charge for the quality of work that they offer is second to none.
